Add another team to the possible sellers list. With Morant out for the season, Memphis is done.

ZechMerquise

Santi Aldama seems nice. 7ft, 34% 3pt shooter. But we need a pg tho

Reality Czech

It’s too bad there’s not a college football championship on every time the Heat play. It was a very pleasant thread this evening 😂😂😂

Reality Czech

I’m rooting for Michigan for 3 reasons:
Mad. Dog. Mandich.
Loved that guy!

Bout30man

Meecheagen!

Reality Czech

We were lucky to have listened to that guy. And to see him play for those great Dolphins teams.

heat for life

u miss me rc. i had the dolphin blues and big mich fan

Reality Czech

Yeah, you’re right. 😆

Big_guy305

Very good win against a good ,upcoming ,young team, that’s top 5 in D.

Reality Czech

Yay! Solid win!

2qbn

First of 4 at home. 4-0 still in play 😉

Big_guy305

Clutch herro back

Bout30man

Call it over. Good win. The Rockets are better. Ty made the shots in crunch time.

Reality Czech

That’s the Herro we need

2qbn

Crap call

Big_guy305

Very clutch of you herro.

Bout30man

Big bucket and one by Ty

2qbn

The Herro arrives

Reality Czech

That’s exactly what I want to see herro do!! Absolutely clutch shot!

Big_guy305

Duncan leading the team with 7 assists

Bout30man

Need to make a few more, tightening up.

2qbn

Play D here

Reality Czech

This is a critical point right here with the game on the line.

Reality Czech

Anyone remember when some people said Spo never plays rookies? Now, Jaquez with the most minutes on the team.

Big_guy305

Jaquez is special, even herro, and bam wasn’t getting all these minutes as a rookie.

Reality Czech

Very very true. And he is definitely special

Fair criticism of Duncan by Crotty. No, hfl, he’s not getting fired for saying it.

Reality Czech

I’m not the least bit concerned about Jovic’s shooting. I know he’s a good shooter and those shots will start falling. I’m happy to see improved defense along with his solid passing and rebounding.

Reality Czech

A penalty situation. No Crotty, a penalty. No need to add extra unnecessary words.

Big_guy305

Bam bam dominant 2nd half

Big_guy305

Duncan cooking

2qbn

Great story

Big_guy305

Hopefully he keeps it going

Big_guy305

Lowry

Reality Czech

Lowry, but came back to the bench. Some left hand injury

Reality Czech

Love has been playing very well lately

Reality Czech

Some great plays by Niko!

Big_guy305

Injuries suck

Reality Czech

Yet another injury, wow.

Big_guy305

Gotta shoot better from the ft line tho

Big_guy305

Jovic got 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 blocks already.

Reality Czech

Great defensive play by Lowry

Reality Czech

Need to make those free throws

Big_guy305

Jrich balling !

Reality Czech

I definitely wanted to see a better game by Herro tonight. He was awful last game.

Big_guy305

He playing a good game so far, pretty efficient.

Reality Czech

With Butler out, he needs to help lead by example each game. Don’t need to score 30+, just be efficient.

Big_guy305

I agree, hopefully he continues this good start.

Big_guy305

Herro playing very good so far

Big_guy305

Point forward Jaime to LOCKSMITH 3

Big_guy305

Dunc in the post and 1

Big_guy305

Jrich playing well so far.

Big_guy305

Locksmith with good d as always

Big_guy305

Jovic giving some great minutes.

Reality Czech

Nice to get Highsmith back

Bout30man

Ty with two great plays!

Reality Czech

Great Jovic pass!

Bout30man

Bam with two quick fouls.

Reality Czech

Let’s go Heat!
